Can peas grow in a sandy soil?

Pea    None Given

I have been researching what I can grow in my soil as it is, are peas a good idea? I would ideally like to grow some sugar snap varieties or will the plants not tolerate it. I'm not sure that I have the time available to make extensive soil modifications this year.

Why have some of my peas shriveled in the pod?

Pea    NY

I picked my first handful of snap peas this morning while I was watering. They taste delicious but when I opened a few pods I noticed that only 2-4 peas had properly filled while the others were all shriveled. I had a look through the pea disease section and I don't see anything to explain this....
